Silky loves chasing pigeons and squirrels, and she is always seeking them when we are walking. Every time she sees them she aims at them, lowers her body and when the time is right for her she runs for them. It is as though she was a cheetah chasing her prey, though she never gets them. Woof? If she gets them what would she do? I would take them home and keep them as a pet.
In the squirrel area there are many trees so her prey normally escapes in the trees. She jumps and tries to climb the trees, and also she barks. Silky, we cannot climb trees so it is impossible...
I used to do the same thing, you know, barking at them to get them down. When mummy told me I couldn’t get them when they were in the trees I didn’t understand and kept barking at them. But now, seeing what Silky is doing, well...she is still a little puppy girl so she will learn soon.
Silky blames me saying that I am too loud and woofly noisy so they run away quickly as if it is my fault. I am not that loud am I, daddy?
If we could climb trees it would be fun wouldn’t it? Hmmm...woof? I’ve watched a doggie climbing a tree on a telly before. Why don’t we try, Silky?
Look!! We look like two sheltie birds on the tree don’t we?
After daddy took this photo, Silky easily jumped off the tree. On the other hand I had to wait for mummy to rescue me. Maybe we shouldn’t learn how to climb trees.
